I have a 2013 TL and looking to get my wife the rdx tech

I was offered: is this a good deal?
My cost on it is $37,049. If we agree on $500 markup (rounded down) that would be sales price of $37,500. Tax is $3037. Doc is $449. Plates are $667. So that would total $41.653.

    It's hard wrapping my head around the idea that the 2015 models are already out for some cars. :)

    The Tech Package (FWD) invoices for $37,097 as you note. TMV is $39,195, so $37,500 would be a price well below "average". Most people are paying closer to MSRP.

    The doc fee looks a bit high and I assume the plate fee isn't negotiable at all. But you're doing good "by the book".

    Thank you for the information. I thought is sounded good as well.

    They are also throwing tints, wheel locks, paint protector, and trunk tray.

    For 2013, one year ago, we paid $37,200 for RDX w/Tech Pkg.($4K). However do not buy it since the Navigation system is inaccurate and the regular sound system is fine. Instead buy a good Garmin GPS ($125+) for accuracy and free updates, plus, traffic.

  • I bought a silver 2015 RDX last month. I got the AWD without tech. for $34,600 + TTL, but tax is about the highest in the country here in CA. Got a decent price on my trade in which made the deal worth it for me, but I'm sure there are people who paid less. After a month and 1,800 miles I am extremely pleased. Lowest MPG average for a tank was 24.5 highest was 28.8. I feel like the car itself, is a great value and would have paid more for it.

  • Paid $37.6K before tax, registration and doc fee for AWD w/Tech in northern NJ. Had free all weather mats thrown in too.

  • That sounds like a great deal, congrats...good that you got the mats. I got the mats, cargo cover, cargo tray, and net from Amazon for substantial savings. What color did you end up getting?

  • black w/ black interior. my only hangup is that the navigation and voice command could be better, but the price is great compared to competitors.

    I posted in the 2014 thread but wanted to post here again since the final price was a bit different. I apologize I don't have the exact breakdown in front of me but my tax rate is 7.25% (DuPage County, Illinois) and I had new plates so that should help figure out the ballpark pricing.

    2015 RDX AWD - Tech Package (Pearl Black Exterior/Ebony Interior)

    Sale price: $37.9k OTD: ~$42.5k

    Included Accessories:

    Acura remote start system w/ 2 remotes, All-season floor mats, Cargo tray, Splash guards, Wheel locks, First-Aid kit, Body moldings

    Other (Included in OTD price): 4yr/60K maintenance ($724)

    I mainly opted for the maintenance package as the oil changes over 4 years themselves would eat up majority of that upfront payment. Plus, having the dealer do all the other scheduled services doesn't hurt. Worst case scenario, the maintenance over 4 years doesn't cost $724 and I lose out on about $200-300. Best case scenario, I come out ahead considering the cost of oil changes over 4 years plus any 30K/60K services.

    Also I traded in my 2004 Lexus RX330 with 148K miles for close to $7k. Lexus and few other dealers had appraised it at about $5k due to being "beat up." Although it wasn't as bad as the other dealerships made it sound, anything above $6k was a good deal for me considering the condition of the car.

    With everything said and done, I paid about $36k.

    Hi all - we got a 2015 acura rdx base with tint and wheel locks for 32.5k (35 otd) in DFW area. hope we got a good deal.

    All - I booked my 2015 Acura RDX (Black exterior - Ebony interior) AWD with Tech package for 37.6k (Tax/Reg extra) in Bay Area, CA. No additional accessories though. Is this a good deal or did I pay more ?

  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 41,309

    @wolfraj, TMV when I spec it out for a SoCal zip is $39,151. Invoice (with destination) is $38,877.

    So you are doing better than the "average" and you must be eating into the dealer holdback or other hood money by getting a quote below invoice.

    It looks like @aeropatel may have gotten a few more accessories thrown in on his IL deal, but you're close.

    Enjoy the new ride (you too @chimpi99 !).

    I am getting a quote of $33,100 + TTL in CA for base model RDX (without Tech - FWD) .. Would appreciate any guidance on how the pricing for this is relative to what others have seen recently
  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 41,309
    edited September 27
    @mits81, for starters, Invoice on the base is $34,157, MSRP is $35,990. The average price paid is $34,410 and that includes destination. There's currently a Price Promise number of $33,981 on the RDX page here.

    So, you're off to a good start. @chimpi99 got one for $32.5 in DFW so you may be able to wrangle another $500 bucks off.

    Anyone buying this weekend (SoCal or elsewhere)?

    Question: I just got a OTD price offer for 2015 RDX AWD with tech: $40,997. Here is the breakdown: pretax price: 38200; tax: 2208; doc: 589.

    Is this a good price or I will overpay. Thanks for your wisdom

    Average price paid is $39,429. Not as killer a deal as that one you are working on the Murano but not too shabby either - your quote is ~$350 below invoice. @hotskate's deal looks like it was a bit better but a lot depends on the region and the time of the month that you buy.

    Can you go shopping with me next time I get a new car? B)

    sure, I took a lot of time with this and tried not to cave in easily. Yeah, I tried to Acura dealer to lower a bit more. Their manager said right in my face that he would lower a penny.
  • hz1905hz1905 Posts: 6
    but my OTD price is slightly better than @hotskate

    Yeah the doc fees can kill an otherwise good deal. His sales price of $37,500 was pretty good - I think the dealer made their profit on the doc fees. You can't do anything about the taxes or plate fees unless you move.
